Mazda Astina Review Australia

 

Mazda is Australia's second best-selling car brand. It is basically a Japanese car manufacturer that is located in Hiroshima. This company incorporates every significant segment of the car world, including hatchbacks, sedans and small as well as midsize SUVs. In 2021, they have introduced the fourth generation of Mazda 3 Hatchback. With the introduction of this hatchback, the company has taken a completely different turn. They have said goodbye to their zoom-zoom designs and have welcomed a new brand slogan that goes like "Driving Matter ". Now Mazda aims to target a new audience. Before, the target was the young people interested in sporty products. Currently, Mazda has transferred its attention to a mature audience who look for luxury products at mainstream prices. 

 

The turn taken by Mazda is very apparent as soon as one steps inside the 2021 Mazda Astina. This hatchback comes with premium materials and an elegant design, and its interior is as luxurious as the interior of Audi. In addition, the 2021 Mazda also adds on a turbocharged engine variant. To know more about the 2021 Mazda Astina, keep on reading.

 

Mazda Astina engine:

The 2021 Mazda Astina G25 has a 2.5-litre engine capacity. This big long-stroke engine of this particular range offers 139kW of power at 6000rpm and 252 Nm of torque at 4000rpm. This hatchback runs on 91 RON or E10 fuel with cylinder deactivation and stop-start smarts features. 

 

The 2021 Mazda Astina engine comes mated to a conventional six-speed automatic transmission. If one prefers going manual, they can opt for a six-speed manual. The combined fuel claim on paper is 6.6L/100km which looks efficient, but the engine's consumption climbs to 8.6L claimed around town.  It does drop to an advertised 5.4L on the open road, and the tank of the 2021 Mazda Astina measures 51 litres.

 

Mazda Astina exterior:

The Mazda Astina Hatchback adopts its looks from the  Mazda 3 Sedan. The adoption of styling has made this hatchback one of the most handsome cars in its segment. The slim LED headlights on the large grille are neatly integrated into the overall design. The Mazda Astina's base model incorporates 16-inch alloy wheels, and the upper models ride on 18-inch wheels in a black finish. 

 

Along the side of the 2021 Mazda Astina, there is an exceedingly chunky C-pillar that stands out the most. Although it is distinctive, it is the main reason contributing to the poor rearward visibility of the 2021 Mazda Astina. 

 

All the versions of  Mazda Astina accompany a rear roof spoiler. On the other hand, the upper variants come with a power glass moonroof. The newly introduced  Mazda Astina hatchback shares its dimension with the Honda Civic Hatchback. The only difference is in length, and the Honda Civic Hatchback is just 2.3 inches longer.

 

The measurements of the  Mazda Astina go like this:

 175.6 inches long

 70.7 inches in width

 56.7 inches in height

 107.3-inch wheelbase

 

Mazda Astina interior:

Without a premium badge, the 2021 Mazda Astina provides a premium cabin. The interior of the  Mazda Astina provides high-quality stitching, solid switchgear and a smart layout. The interior of the Mazda definitely provides a great impression. 

 

The front passengers will not have issues, but the rear seat passengers may have complaints. You will get a keyless entry system, cloth-trimmed seats, air conditioning, and push-button ignition from the entry-level. You will get additional features from the upper range like heated front seats, leather-upholstered seats, a head-up display, and a Bose premium sound system. 

 

It is a five-seater in which two passengers can enjoy upfront and three can be squeezed on the rear seats. The front passengers have ample legroom and headroom. On the other hand, the rear passenger will miss out on generous legroom and headroom.

 

 The trunk of the Mazda 3 falls short in terms of overall capacity. It is not a perfect practical hatchback as it lacks space, but you can free more space by folding the rear seats forward. Although the interior storage space in the 2021 Mazda Astina is reasonable, yet it is not exceptional. 

 

This hatchback incorporates a centre console (can be used as the armrest), a glove box,  a front passenger-side seatback pocket,  storage bins in the front doors with bottle holders,  a front passenger-side seatback pocket, and an overhead console to store your sunglasses on most variants.
